The Governance Code is a Code of Practice for Good Governance of Community, Voluntary and Charitable Organisations in Ireland.

Governance refers to how an organisation is run, directed and controlled. Good governance is the measure that Helium Arts is rightly held against by its donors, the public and all those who trust us. Having the highest standards shows those who support us that we are accountable and transparent. We take this responsibility very seriously.

Our work would not be possible without the support of our funders and partners.

You can see Helium Arts annual governance reports on our page on the charity regulator website here.  Further information is available by contacting info@governancecode.ie

Helium Arts is a non-governmental organisation and a registered charity.

Registered Charity Number (RCN): 20075200.
